HEA

USAToday HEA recommends HIGHLAND SEER!  “16th-century intrigue, muscled men with claymores and a doomed romance — is it any wonder I was reluctant to leave the rich, riveting world of Highland Seer? Good thing I can make my way back easily enough — all I have to do is treat myself to Blair’s celebrated debut, Highland Healer.”

logo InD’Tale Magazine gives HIGHLAND SEER (Highland Talents #2) ★★★★1/2 Stars! “The lilting dialogue, the portrayal of life in early 1500s Scotland and the wonderful description of the vast and beautiful highlands really puts one in the center of the story…“Highland Seer” is a delightful highland romance!”  Read the full review HERE.

“I really enjoyed this engaging, somewhat off-beat tale of the strong, high spirited widow, Ellie MacKyrie.

Selected Reviews:

“From the first page to the last a joy to read. This one goes on mykeeper shelf. There are many layers to the story and I am sure that re-reading it I’ll discover more. And it will be re-read many times over.”

“This was a fun read. The mystical within the romance gives it a great edge. Like “Highland Healer” it was easy to get invested in the characters; Ellie and Donal were awesome. I really wanted to strangle the MacDuff myself! Great job Willa; can’t wait for #3″

“Willa Blair has built a love story of both the Highlands and the world surrounding the aftermath of a horrible war and the people struggling to find new life and meaning to their world…Who cannot love an exciting adventure and a tortured love interest, a terrific second book to the Highland Talents series.”

“Their love story develops slowly, in a physical setting that I felt was both romantic and rough. The descriptions transported me to the highlands. I liked that Ellie went after what she wanted; it was refreshing to depart from the typical timid maiden and meet a heroine who is both wise and mature.”

“I was so caught up in Willa’s debut novel in this series, I’d been looking forward to the next one. Now it’s here. Highland Seer follows some of the characters in the first book, and it’s another winner. Willa Blair recreates a time and a place (she must do so much research) that takes you into a wonderful world, a kind of never-never land that you want with all your heart to have existed. In this one, the romance is once again both torrid and tender, the plot is swashbuckling, and characters hook you into their stories from the first page. Keep writing, Willa. I’m a devoted fan!”

Selected Reviews:

“I loved this story! I’m a sucker for any romance where the heroes are in kilts. This has just the right amount of paranormal aspect with Aileanna’s talents, but I have to say that it’s Toran who won me over. What a stud! The love scenes were written so beautifully. I just wanted to melt in Toran’s arms. I’m on to the next in the series now. I hope the next hero is as amazing as Toran. Mmmmmmm.”

“Even with the supernatural twist, this Highland romance adventure had a lovely story. It was quite the battle of wills and love ending with … Well, I don’t want to spoil the ending! Highly recommend this story!!!”

“Be prepared to sit for a while because you will not want to put down this book. I have always been a fan of Highland romances and this one ranks right up there among my favorites. Heroine, Aileana, is like no healer you have read before. Her unique and amazing powers put a refreshing spin on 16th century Scotland. She and her talents do not give the hero, Toran, a moment’s peace, keeping the tension thick and the action moving. With a vibrant supporting cast and viciously evil villain, Blair keeps you entertained from page one and does not stop until The End.”

“This is a beautiful love story set in Scotland 1516. Once I started reading I couldn’t stop, the writing just draws you in and I couldn’t put it down until I finished!”

“A lovely historical romance set in an unusual time period, brought to you with all the drama and passion of that era. With a touch of magic in the mix, Highland Healer is a page-turner, filled with memorable, intricate characters. Highly recommend!”

“I admit that I rarely read historical romance but Willa Blair’s Highland Healer has changed that. The saga of Toran, Laird of Clan Lathan and Aileana Shaw, against the background of the unsettling period following the tragedy of Flodden Field, is riveting, intriguing and downright addicting. Aileana’s ability as a healer and Toran’s need for one on both a personal and a clan leader’s basis, along with their growing love for one another, is the basis for a book that will hold you from beginning to end. The characters are engaging, the sensuality smoldering, the tension the kind that plays heck with one’s manicure. Brava, Willa Blair!!”
